A lot of content creators took to social media to discuss their views regarding the latest mini-series, in which comment sections were also filled with differing perspectives.
In a Reddit thread, people talked about the mini series’ release and their thoughts about Cleopatra’s race. Check out what some people had to say below:
“It’s straightforward. If Netflix wants to make Cleopatra black, which is historically inaccurate, they should not market the program as a documentary. The pushback is 100% justified as this is plain misinformation.”
“It’s another example of attempting to rewrite history. Woman king suffers from this too. It’s intentionally done to start controversy and then the show claims “what do you mean your upset” and allows them to virtue signal. The only thing that can come from this is furthering racial divides to the point people start casting Ryan Gosling as MLK”
What do you think about the alleged claims, allegations, and reported lawsuit?
